I would like to convert a number which comes from an URL parameter to an european standard number. Meaning:
this: 2.2 to this: 2,2.

How is this possible? I tried LSNumberFormat, but it converts 2.2 to 2 if I use it like this: #LSNumberFormat(#URL.sl1#, "____,___")#

using decimalformat() - u shld be able to convert the number format to "," but this wont affect a change in ur case

if its just that u want the "." to be repalce by "," then u cld just use "ListChangeDelims()" to get thigns done

#LSNumberFormat(#URL.sl1#, "_,_")#
